Why stay here ...

Edinburgh Club Site is an ideal location for your holiday getaway. Situated on the Firth of Forth, the caravan park provides easy access to Edinburgh, Europe's festival capital. You will be ideally located for the many attractions, both modern and historic, that this beautiful city has to offer.

Edinburgh is a friendly, cosmopolitan city. Edinburgh Club Site puts you within easy reach of some of its most famous landmarks. You can visit the castle which clings dramatically to a huge rock face (home to the Scottish Crown Jewels), walk down the Royal Mile to the Palace of Holyrood House (the Queen's official Scottish residence), stroll past the historic Scottish Parliament Building or enjoy the tranquil green expanse of Princes Street Gardens. The caravan site location also ensures that you're well placed for the famously fun summer festivals, seaside strolls, a round or two of golf, Edinburgh Zoo and an almost unlimited choice of restaurants, bars and other entertainment venues.

The site is only a stone’s throw away from the waterfront where campers can walk along the promenade of Cramond and, only a short drive away, visitors can enjoy the popular coastal suburb of Portobello with its pubs, restaurants and shops.

Exceptional Site

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site
Can’t fault the amenities and staff. Site is spotless with everything to hand and spacious level pitches. Easy access to City via Lothian bus (15 minutes walk and you need to download two apps) or a taxi-bus for the less adventurous direct from reception which was brilliant. No really local amenities so recommend stocking up on the way in. Recommend a trip down to the promenade at Cramond (turn left outside the site - half a mile) - smashing beach, an island you can walk to at low tide, and a super quirky beachcomber cafe not to be missed.

Site great, but…

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site
We have used this club site for years to visit Edinburgh where we lived and worked before retirement. The site itself is immaculate, very well kept. Unfortunately, the surrounding area has become a bit of a nightmare. Day and night the road outside is a race track for cars and bikes. As a single woman, I felt very vulnerable walking to the prom and beach as there were drunks and groups of people fighting. There is access down steps opposite the site to the prom but they are long and very steep. Also it was clear that homeless people were sleeping in the woods opposite as there tents and bags of possessions were lying around. The prom and walks/cycle tracks are lovely, but I would suggest if you want to walk your dog there to drive down. Also the street outside has no lights at night. The walk to the town buses is about half a mile. The fantastic dog walk on the site, known as “spoof wood” has been closed. This is so disappointing as it was a special place to walk the dog. Avery small enclosure under trees with brambles growing through underfoot has replaced it where you must keep dog on lead. In summary, the site itself is super, dog walk is poor and surrounding area is seedy.

Lovely setting close to Edinburgh - but noisy

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site
The staff are excellent, the location is very good and close enough to walk to the city centre in 90 minutes although there is a regular mini bus service and plenty of local buses within walking distance. Our major bugbear was the locals using the land behind the site for their off road trials motor bikes. Usually starting around 4.30pm and going on for a couple of hours at least. If you have no issues with noise it’s a a perfect location.

Lovely costal site with excellent a minibus option to get into Edinburgh

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site
Lovely site, with a beautiful costal location - not what we expected for Edinburgh! The mini bus into Edinburgh with fun and knowledgable drivers was an asset. (Could this be organised for other sites?!) Peaceful and spacious site.

Great site but.....

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site
We have been to this site many years ago, the staff are very nice and they do a great job of keeping it all running. Many reviews say a lot about people walking the road around the site, this is true, you can often hear people outside the site all hours and boy racers up and down the outside road, this is not the sites fault and the site is very very secure with CCTV. The site is great for if you are visiting Edinburgh. Only one thing I would like to see change due to the recent Covid19 secure procedures this site has put in place and that is they open up at least 1 male urinal in the toilet to eliminate the problem of walking in to a cubicle to find urine all over the seats and floor, we gave been to sites with less urinals than this site and they at least have one open!
